A hilarious night out
An unmissable night of English stand-up featuring international comedy talent and the best of local expat comedy, hosted by Benjamin Delahaye. Two headliners are bringing the fun to Zurich this month!
President Obonjo is an upcoming and increasingly successful stand-up comedian. As the larger-than-life, uber-confident, self-appointed, side-splitting dictator of 'Lafta Republic', President Obonjo has quietly been leading a comedy revolution to become the first President to take over the comedy industry by storm. He has been creating rumblings by storming New Act competitions including winning Luton Comedian of the Year, Runner-Up at Great Yorkshire Fringe and was a finalist in the Naty New Act of the Year competition 2016. His previous solo show President Obonjo Stole My Identity was performed in 2015 at Bath Comedy Festival, Brighton Fringe and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals in 2015 and 2017 to packed crowds and critical acclaim. His latest show the Rise of the Comedy Dictator was performed at Edinburgh Fringe Comedy Festival in 2017 and at Leicester Comedy Festival in 2018.
Jack Holmes is a hilarious stand up comedian, originally from the US, currently located in Vienna, Austria. After performing in nearly 20 countries, 2 hugely successful performances at the 2018 Sziget Festival Comedy Stage, opening for some of the biggest acts in the U.K and a debut headlining tour with sell out shows across the continent, Jack Holmes has proven himself as one of the fastest rising comedians in Europe. Embittered and armed with his quick wit and sharp tongue, Jack has developed a comedic style that's guaranteed to entertain. Equal parts honest, vicious, and playful, his act mixes brutal self-deprecation with bewilderment and frustration at the world around him, creating a show every bit as heartwarming and endearing as it is gut wrenchingly hilarious.
Benjamin Delahaye is based in Zurich and is the host of English Stand Up at Comedy Haus. He has performed all over Switzerland, in his home country France, in Los Angeles at the Comedy Store, in Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Amsterdam, the UK, Australia... His comedy will make you realize that all stereotypes you hold about French people are not only true, but also worse than you thought.
Vanessa Lépine is a rising newcomer in the comedy scene from Montreal. She has lived in Switzerland for the past 4 years. She performs in English and that weird language she calls French. She talks mainly about the joy (or the lack of) of being a single woman in her thirties.
